Mahmoud Farshchian (January 24, 1930-) is a world renowned master of Persian painting and miniatures. He was born in the city of Isfahan in Iran(persia), a place famed for its art and artists, and it was here where he started to learn art and painting. His masterpieces have been hosted by several museums and exhibitions worldwide. He's the most prominent modernizer of the field of miniatures, an art form which was first established in China and later spread along Persia and other Middle eastern...

This article is from BMC Genomics, volume 9.AbstractBackground: A reciprocal relationship between bone and fat development in osteoporosis is clinically well established. Some of the key molecular regulators involved in this tissue replacement process have been identified. The detailed mechanisms governing the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) – the key cells involved – are however only now beginning to emerge. In an attempt to address the regulation of the... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2492879
This article is from Nucleic Acids Research, volume 39.AbstractRetrotransposed sequences arise from messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that have been reinserted into genomic DNA by reverse transcription. Usually, these sequences are embedded in dormant regions, collect missense mutations over time and constitute processed, nonfunctional pseudogenes. There are thousands of processed pseudogenes in the mouse and human genome. Here, we report evidence for two paralog genes (termed Arxes1 and Arxes2), which...

This article is from Aging Cell, volume 9.AbstractAging is a multifactorial process where deterioration of body functions is driven by stochastic damage while counteracted by distinct genetically encoded repair systems. To better understand the genetic component of aging, many studies have addressed the gene and protein expression profiles of various aging model systems engaging different organisms from yeast to human. The recently identified small non-coding miRNAs are potent... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2848978
